Magic Minerals by Jeroma Alexander

Magic Minerals by Jerome Alexander is a product that promises to conceal, correct and adjust to every skintone and it comes in the form of a pressed mineral powder which is talc and fragrance free. Encased inside this compact, which includes a mirror, blending sponge and is accompanied by a professional stubby brush, is a powder which looks too pretty too use and I immediately assumed it would be too dark for my skintone.

I am always quite skeptical when it comes to these products which claim to be able to help cover and conceal pimples, blemishes, scars and birthmarks, but I am always willing to give them a go, because you just never know. Inside and compressed into the powder you can see tiny flecks of colour, each of those colours are called Colour Correctors and they are said to do the following:

  • Lavender - helps camouflage yellow and sallow complexions 
  • Pink - brightens dull skin giving a glow over the entire face 
  • Mint - Described as being for 'ruddy' complexions, discolorations and mark such as redness and blemishes is to be used all over the face to camouflage and even out overall tone. 
  • Yellow - Covers discoloration under the eyes such as dark circles and helps cover skin discoloration and uneven skin tones. 

The new Magic Minerals is now enhanced with nourishing antioxidants vitamin E and vitamin C in a proprietary formula.

On the skin, this powder is incredibly lightweight and it does apply flawlessly, much more so than I was expecting and it does give great coverage. I am not a fan of foundations which feel as though they are sitting on top of your skin, I like them to feel natural and not look as though I have troweled it on. This is what I get with this powder, though on its own I feel as though it isn't quite enough and that I need to wear something else, which is where my Urban Decay Naked Skin powder comes in really handy, as combined, the two work really well together.

I have flare ups of Roseacea on my cheeks (this is partly why you will never see a full face shot on my blog, it is an insecurity) and this powder works really well to help neutralise the redness, though not rid it entirely, but it never claimed to be a miracle product, it definitely does help to conceal, to the point where I am happy with the coverage. The powder doesn't cling to dry skin on the face and it does mop up oily parts much better than I anticipated, the downside to combination oily skin, is that mid-afternoon the shine begins to appear and the coverage lasts all day long, though I do use a primer and setting spray.

  

What do you think to this? Have you tried it before?

  10. I use mineral makeup but not this brand. Mineral makeup is great to provide SPF to protect your skin too. I would love to try this brand, it looks great for redness and discolouration.

  12. I saw this at Boots and I think Superdrug but all of those "as seen on TV" stand makes me walk right by it. But it is nice to hear it did have a bit of an affect.

  31. I’m really amazed with your posting skills as well as with the layout on your blog site. Is this a paid style or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the pleasant quality writing, it is rare to see a great site such as this one these days.I recently came to know about https://avanaaustralia.com.au/, their Mineral Makeup are very effective.
